After ten years as an Allstate Captive agent in Oklahoma I sold my agency and my wife, Jo Lyn, and I have moved her Independent Agency, Metro East, to New Mexico. We moved because we love the Land of Enchantment. We are excited to be able to offer New Mexico a choice in insurance coverage and prices. Let us do the shopping for you.

As a retired National Board Certified teacher with a 19-year tenure in Oklahoma, I was persuaded by my husband, a 10 year Allstate Agency owner, to start an Independent Agency: Metro East Insurance Group. When my husband, Mike, sold his Allstate Insurance Agency we decided to relocate Metro East Insurance Group to the ABQ area because we wanted a life of adventure. We can quote your insurance with many different carriers and are excited to share our options with you. Call us!
